Summary: Layout bug for measure tool

Initial Comment:

From the mailing list:

The position if the labels and values is hardcoded and they are written into
the molecule view.
You never know, how long the translated string is, but even if it is possible
to make the whole dialog and the molecule view greater, the distance of labels
and values is fixed.

It would be better to move the label and values to the bottom of the molecule
view and layout them in a stretchable grid (3 rows + 4 columns).

If the text of when label is too long, I can then make the dialog window
wider, this increases also the with of the columns, so that the text is
readable again.
